LPN help?

  1. 0 I am new to town, and was wondering if anyone has completed or is taking the LPN courses from Hinds CC? I will be starting my program in January, and really dont know what to expect. I am really nervous and excited too. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Lindsey, glad to hear you will be starting the LPN program this January. I was also trying to get in the LPN at Hinds CC, but the wait list is long. I did not want to wait, so I will be doing a Surgical Tech prgram this January at another college. then try to get in nursing school from there. Hinds has a great nursing program. You will be glad you chose Hinds. Wish I had been as lucky as you are to be in already. I am wondering did you have a long wait before your name came up. Good luck and God bless.

    Well, I applied back in March, before my husband and I got to Jackson. I was put on the wait list very early because of that. I was upset. I really wanted to start in August, but now I am glad to be starting Jan. I have heard that Hinds is a good school. So I am excited. I just got my financial aid info yesterday : ) Sorry to hear that you got wait-listed. But I am very glad to see that you are moving on and looking elsewhere. Best of luck to you.

    Yes, you will be happy with the LPN class at Hinds. Do you think you will go on for RN? I was thinking about that after I complete the surgical tech program. Not sure yet, I kind of wouldn't mind getting into diagnostic medical sonography. Guess I will just have to take it one step at a time though. Anyway best wishes at your career goals. Keep me posted how it goes. Maybe, who knows, I might luck up at Hinds one day. God bless

    I plan on getting my RN after a few years of working. That is if I make a good nurse. I will be attending the ADN program at Hinds as well. I also have a few pre-reqs that I need to finish first.

    I hear that the pre-reqs can be tough on some. takes years sometimes to complete all courses. but after all the work it will be worth it. I am sure so will do good and make a good nurse. Best wishes. Take care.
